America’s Got Talent: All Stars week 2 will feature Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer from season 17, Sara James. Last summer, the 13 year old singer from Poland impressed the judges panel and fans alike with her mature and compelling style.
While Sara made the final in 2022, she finished outside of the Top 5. However, although she didn’t win, Sara, in her video package from her leaked audition (watch below), describes how the Polish press went crazy when she returned home.
Currently, she’s performing in Poland, but is hoping that AGT: All Stars will give her the opportunity to “travel all over the world.” It’s her dream.
She begins her rendition of Harry Styles’ massive hit “As it Was,” as an electronic-drenched ballad. She stretches out the notes to show off her rich alto. But halfway through the performance, the arrangement shifts to the familiar upbeat tempo of Harry’s version.
“A star in the making”
Judge Howie Mandel remarks, “You’re able to take…iconic sounds and make it your own…That could be a winning performance. Heidi Klum calls Sara a “star in the making” adding “I have so much respect for you for coming back.” She mentions that her 13 year old daughter is a huge fan. Simon feels that Sara showed the world who she is as an artist, saying “I do believe with this performance, you’ve given yourself that break.” He adds that Sara reminds him of pop star and X Factor USA alum Camila Cabello.
Sara is obviously not host Terry Crews’ Golden Buzzer (He does the honors this week). But will the Superfans vote Sara through to the finale? Only TWO contestants will survive! Find out when Week 2 of America’s Got Talent: All Stars airs on NBC Monday Jan. 9 at 8 pm ET/PT.
